Submission Guidelines

Thanks for your interest in contributing your writing and/or artwork to Synchronized Chaos! We would love to take a look at what you have, please email your work to Creative Facilitator/Editor-in-Chief Cristina Deptula at synchchaos@gmail.com with “Synchronized Chaos” in the subject line.

We, at Synchronized Chaos, do not impose themes or styles upon our contributors. People are free to pursue their own artistic or personal visions, and we dialogue with the contributors if they choose throughout the creative process to provide professional advice and feedback. With the publication of each new issue at the end of every month, we look over the submissions and come up with that month’s theme which we describe in an editorial introductory letter.

We welcome contributions from new and established writers and visual/musical artists; and focus on quality, craftspersonship, and building relationships with and among our readership and the contributors. We aim to publish a wide variety of work in a variety of styles – photo essays, travelogues, digital artwork, formal and free verse poetry, short fiction and nonfiction, humor, well-written, unique personal experience and memoir, and effectively argued perspectives on pertinent issues.

Examples of contributions which would be great for Synchronized Chaos include well-written travel essays describing one’s experience in a foreign country adding a human face/story to what people may or may not see in the news, poetry re-examining or re-inventing old formal styles for modern issues and sensibilities, graphic art inspired by one’s technical, business, or otherwise non-traditionally artistic background, etc. Who we are and what we are about is constantly evolving and changing depending on submissions we receive. All we ask is for contributors to put thought, time, energy, and attention to craft and style into their work.

We especially welcome those contributors who may not yet have found a home for their work in the publishing world – who prefer the process of creating to the process of selling and promoting their work. We periodically tour art galleries and attend writers’ conferences, and leave the names and websites of our contributors with gallery owners, agents, and publishers whenever we find a potentially good match for someone’s work.

Thanks again for your interest! You will hear from us very soon.
